Hello, I successfully installed Hackintosh and confirmed that my NVRAM is working. I am having a login loop(can't move keyboard or mouse) when using Nvidia web drivers. It works perfectly with nv_disable=1. Using only Dedicated GPU not IGPU. I have attached my EFI down below.

Here is a revied CLOVER folder that should work with your system and get you over the mouse/keyboard issues.

Use the whole CLOVER folder not just parts of it. Hope it helps.

Same issue, login loop:
I don't think it's nvidia drivers or native nvram, I'm running the latest high sierra build I tried other versions still same issue.

@Edhawk got a clue why i'm still getting this issue? could it be a hardware issue?

If the components work, all be it with out acceleration for your Nvidia card, using the nv-disable=1 boot argument then it is unlikely to be a hardware fault.

Which version of macOS High Sierra are you running, not the main 10.13.6 number but the sub-version number. As each sub-version of High Sierra 10.13.6 requires different/updated Nvidia Web Drivers.

I would recommend you do the following:

  1. Boot in to High Sierra with the nv-disable=1 boot argument
  2. Go to 'About this Mac' and click on the version number, on my MacBook Pro running Catalina
  3. The version number to click is highlighted by the red rectangle in the screenshot below.
  4. The number in brackets that appears is the sub-version number you want.
  5. Now go to Tonymacx86, navigate to the Downloads > Nvidia Drivers page - https://www.tonymacx86.com/nvidia-drivers/ and download the Nvidia Web Drivers that match your sub-version number.

The video you attached is next to impossible to see clearly, I gained no further information by seeing the video.

1st Assumption: You have replaced your CLOVER folder with the one I provided and are still using the one I provided.

The reason I query this is because your original config.plist didn't include the NvidiaWeb=true option in the System Parameters section

2nd Assumption: You have your mouse and keyboard connected to a single USB 2 port on the rear I/O plate if using wifi dongle, or to a pair of USB2 ports if a wired mouse and keyboard are being used.

The reason I ask this is because your original config.plist lacked the correct USB rename patches, USB port limit patches and a number of other necessary options.

Can you confirm the two assumptions above are correct, with the 2nd assumption confirm which port your mouse and keyboard are plugged in to.

Maybe I'll try a lower version of high sierra? Maybe 10.13.5?

Changing to a lower/older version of High Sierra will not necessarily help. Not unless your current USB installer is corrupted and that is the reason your installation is not working.

Don't think the USB installation is broken, it works perfectly with nv_disable=1 I tried reinstalling the install media.

Sorry my brain has been taking a bit of a holiday.

You are using a Coffee Lake CPU that is not likely to run well on High Sierra without first being faked as a Kaby Lake CPU/IGPU.

I have posted a section of Hackintosher's Mojave installation guide, the IGPU setup section.

Step 3.1: Configuring ig platform id
For graphics to work properly we need to manually tell macOS which way graphics is run by setting a property value to AAPL,ig-platform-id


AAPL,ig-platform-id can be found by Selecting Devices on the left-side column of Clover Configurator > Selecting the Properties tab > Clicking PciRoot(0x0)/Pci(0x2,0x0) > Double clicking Properties Value*
  1. The Property Value is determined by the generation of Intel CPU and whether your Display/PC Monitor cable is connected to integrated graphics (iGPU) or a dedicated graphics card (dGPU):
Your IGPU would normally be set up with the Coffee Lake dGPU settings below, however as you are running High Sierra you should instead try/use the Kaby Lake dGPU settings:
  • Coffee Lake Intel UHD Graphics 630
    • iGPU:
      • AAPL,ig-platform-id: 07009B3E
    • dGPU:
      • AAPL,ig-platform-id: 0300923E
  • Kaby Lake Intel HD Graphics 630
    • iGPU:
      • AAPL,ig-platform-id: 00001259
    • dGPU:
      • AAPL,ig-platform-id: 03001259
Apple only recently introduced the i5 & i7-8600 series of CPU's to their range of systems. I believe they are only found in the iMac 19.2 range. These 19.2 systems will not run High Sierra. The earliest version of macOS they will run on a Hack in native Coffee Lake mode, is Mojave 10.14.5. Prior to this all i7-8600 users had to use a Kaby Lake SMBIOS and IGPU settings.

You will probably also need to add Fake ID for IntelGFX=0x59128086 to your config.

Here is a revised CLOVER folder for your Asus Z390-A Prime motherboard system.

Not a lot of difference between the two CLOVER folders and config.plist.
  • Ethernet driver changed, Aptio driver changed,
  • Added SSDT-TB3HP.aml for the Thunderbolt connector on the Prime Motherboard, and
  • Made a couple of small changes to the config.
I have assumed you are still installing macOS High Sierra 10.13.6 and using the Nvidia GTX 1060 graphics card.

OK, delete the folloiwng SSDT's from the /CLOVER/ACPI/patched folder and try again.

SSDT-EC.aml
SSDT-TB3HP.aml
SSDT-USBX.aml

One of them is likely to be causing the ACPI errors.

The SSDT-XOIS.aml is not likely to be the cause, but if it does cntinue after removing the other three delete the SSSDT-XOSI.aml as well. This SSDT is linked to a DSDT/SSDT rename patch in the config.plist, whihc you should also disable or remove if you need to remove the SSDT.
